An 82-year-old retired physician gave a history of using a fluoroscope for manipulation of patients in the 1930's and 40's without protecting his hands during this radiation treatment of his patients. Approximately one year prior to this photograph he developed pain in his hand. This photograph shows severe irradiation changes in the fingers with distortion of the nails and small tumor masses arising beneath the skin that on biopsy proved to be high-grade sarcomas arising from his irradiation dermatitis.
